What Astrologers Should Say — And How to Say It

Astrology is composed of three things: a science, science mixed with art, and an art. If you're giving, or planning to give astrological consultations to people, you have either learned how to create charts from scratch or you have this done on computer. You have also spent endless hours learning what the signs, houses, planets, aspects, etc. mean as they appear on the chart. That is the scientific part of astrology. The science mixed with art is known as synthesis: the blending of all that information into a coherent whole.

The next step to becoming an expert in astrology is to learn the art of knowing what to say and how to say it. Excelling in this art is what will help you become famous as an expert astrologer. And the book that shows you how to develop this aspect of astrology is Noel Tyl's Guide to Astrological Consultation.

This book does more than simply give ideas about consulting. It is a thorough presentation of Tyl's elegant and refined method that incorporates strong elements of counseling and therapy.

 What to do and say when first contacted for an appointment
How to prepare before the consultation
Elements to include in your reading
Unnecessary details that can be excluded from the reading

If you are an astrologer, or want to be, this book has the information you need to make your readings clear, powerful, and effective.

Time: A Friend and Foe
As an astrologer, you have only so much time you can give to a client. You've already spent time calculating the chart and preparing the interpretation. The next step is to present that information in a way that gets the information across to the client. If you rush it, you won't be able to express everything you need to, and if you take too much time with repetition or focusing on unneeded details, the message will also be lost. You can't spend too much or too little time with your client.

This is another area where this book reveals dynamic insights. It reveals Tyl's way to "cut to the chase" and share what needs to be delivered to the client in the most effective way possible.

The Importance of Image
Tyl points out that when you first come into someone's home or a place of business, you will make instant assessments and impressions for your security. Your clients will do this, too. That means to be most effective you must make your work area clearly represent your professionalism. Tyl reveals what to have in your consultation area and what not to have. He says that the "most important dimension that will establish client security and astrologer preparedness is a display of books." To learn why this is so, and what else you should do, get this guide.

This book not only includes things to look for in a chart to help you give a good reading, but also information from therapeutic paradigms. You'll learn how and why to use aphorisms, the importance of the last five minutes of your consultation and the "3 R's" of this period: review, reinforce and raise spirits.

Noel Tyl's Guide to Astrological Consultation uses numerous examples from his counseling experience to make this system clear and illustrates it with appropriate charts. It will show you how to maintain control over the direction of the consultation while maintaining gentleness in technique and presentation.

If you are a professional astrologer, or thinking of becoming one, this book is more than just an additional guide to chart interpretation, it is an absolute must! It is destined to become a classic astrological resource.
